Strikers undefeated, headed to State Cup finals
After going undefeated in the Oregon Premier League spring season, Hood River’s U14 Strikers boys soccer team moves on to compete in the State Cup finals on May 3, noon at Liberty High School. The team secured a spot in the finals after defeating the second- and third-seeded teams, Crossfire and FC Portland, in back-to-back matches earlier this month.
The day after the championship, the Strikers are hosting a fundraiser for their trip to Nationals this July. The dinner and auction is open to all and will run from 4-7 p.m. at Wy’east Middle School (location changed from earlier announcements).

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
